IAmA Puerto Rican without power since Irma(86 days)! AMA
I’m a 21 year old that experienced his first hurricane(technically 2 but Irma just went past us) and during the first 20mins I wanted it to be over. I stayed awake for 24hrs throughout the whole storm. Now I’m dealing with the problems while still going to college!
More info: I spent the first few weeks doing 6-8hr lines for gas & 3-5hr lines for bags of ice. Then everyday I would drop off my electronics at a neighbor’s house which had a generator. Now things normalized and gas lines are gone, ice isn’t an issue and I own a generator thanks to family from the mainland that sent it to us.
Edit: Hurricane damage
Edit: Whoa this got traction! Questions can keep coming(something to do while I wait for generator lol) I got up early this morning and gonna head to Ponce with my dad and try to see the areas that were affected by the storm along the way.
Edit: It’s 87 days now.
